Jon Taylor Thomas' yule tale charming for tweens.

An innocuously entertaining comedy...

It gets off to a grating start, but this slight comedy eventually finds its feet and delivers a holiday-themed package made up in equal parts of mild laughs and sweet-as-sweet-can-be sentiment.

Arrogance gives way to humility, making this an appropriate, if thoroughly cliched, Christmas morality tale that's sugar-coated with an attractive cast spouting sitcom-quality dialogue.

Surprisingly engaging.

Thomas has a natural screen presence and he never sheds the instinctual wit that made him a household name.

A consistent source of chuckles.

Like a big box of holiday chocolates: There's a lot of variety, and though the quality is a bit uneven, there's enough tasty tidbits to satisfy most everyone in the family.

Silly, light and ever so slightly hip, Christmas movie's a delight!

Nothing that occurred in it was earthshaking or shocking or particularly inventive, but it was well-done, all the same, and I really did like it.
